No. 19 - Extra Duet - Polly and Fat Boy

MIDI File

Polly: Let me look into your basket,
Pretty youth, pretty youth.
Let me look into your basket,
Pretty youth, pretty youth.
If you do, I'll love but you,
And you'll find my heart is true,
And I'll kiss you if you ask it,
Pretty youth, pretty youth.
Fat Boy: You can't tempt me with your smiling.
Pretty maid, pretty maid,
Tho' it's true it's quite beguiling,
Pretty maid, pretty maid.
But with me the things that takes
Is the puddings and the cakes,
And a pot of tea a-biling,
Pretty maid, pretty maid,
Polly: If it's served you by a smiling pretty maid.
Fat Boy: I prefer some ham with eggs just newly laid.
Both: Kisses and Cakes, Tresses and Tarts,
Food for our Tummies and joy for our hearts.
What's the advantage of pretty girl's eyes,
If they're forgotten for cakes and pies?
Kisses and Cakes, Tresses and Tarts,
Food for our Tummies and joy for our hearts.
What's the advantage of pretty girl's eyes,
If they're forgotten for cakes and pies?
   
Polly: What are cakes compared to kisses,
Pretty youth, pretty youth.
With a smile as sweet as this is
Pretty youth, pretty youth,
And an ankle neat and trim
And a waist that's slight and slim,
And a mouth just made for kisses
Pretty youth, pretty youth.
Fat Boy: Yes, you have got eyes that get you
Pretty maid, pretty maid,
But to speak of pies I'll bet you,
Pretty maid, pretty maid.
That although your waist is slight,
Our old cook, tho' she's a fright,
She could make a man forget you
I'm afraid, I'm afraid.
Polly: But her cooking might upset you, I'm afraid.
Fat Boy: I'd forget it when the doctor's bill was paid.
Both: Kisses and Cakes, Tresses and Tarts,
Food for our Tummies and joy for our hearts.
What's the advantage of pretty girl's eyes,
If they're forgotten for cakes and pies?
Kisses and Cakes, Tresses and Tarts,
Food for our Tummies and joy for our hearts.
What's the advantage of pretty girl's eyes,
If they're forgotten for cakes and pies?
